WARNER ROBINS, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – One organization wants to make sure military families don’t struggle when it comes to staying warm this winter.
Representatives from United Military Care say nearly $9,000 Georgia military families can’t pay their utility bills.
Sarah Tosth and her husband who serves at Robins Air Force Base, were one of those families and says many people don’t realize the hardships.
"Military families face so many struggles, and one thing that a deployed airmen or soldier shouldn’t have to worry about is their electricity bill," Tosth said.
SCANA Energy is teaming up with UMC to help military families cope this winter.
They’ve started a fund, and will match every dollar raised above $5,000 and up to $10,000 until the end of February.
